NMCRS annual fund drive: Still time to make a difference From CID Public Affairs

Northwest Florida regional coordinators for the annual Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) active-duty fund drive are counting down the final days to raise funds that directly benefit Sailors, Marines and their families. The drive is scheduled to run until March 31. Command key person volunteers are making a final push to reach 100 percent personal contact goals with all Navy and Marine Corp personnel assigned to the area’s 126 commands to allow each Sailor and Marine the opportunity to participate. “The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society provides financial assistance to Sailors and Marines through a variety of life’s challenges,” said Lt.

This military ball turned into a sentimental journey By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

“Holy cow, we’re old,” I thought, as we found our seats at a recent Joint Service Military Ball in Albany, N.Y. The ballroom was filled with more than 220 sharply dressed ROTC cadets and midshipmen from six colleges in the New York Capital Region – Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Siena College, Union College, State University of New York at Albany, the College of Saint Rose and Hudson Valley Community College. By some stroke of good luck or coincidence, my husband, Francis, had been asked to be the guest of honor at the ball, and had enthusiastically accepted. Back in the 1980s when he was fresh out of Aviation Officer Candidate School in Pensacola, destined for intelligence school and his first tour of duty in an EA-6B squadron at Whidby Island, Wash., Francis never envisioned being a guest of honor at anything, much less making a career out of Navy service. Twenty-eight years later, Francis and I were feeling

proud and sentimental. We’ve attended many military ceremonies over the years – promotions, retirements, commissionings and balls. There is a particular script that is followed at each event with minimal variation, so it’s easy to overlook the significance of the rituals or let one’s mind wander during the speeches. I’ll admit it, I’ve been guilty of taking it all for granted, focusing more on who wore what dress or who won the centerpiece or who botched the Electric Slide (it was usually Francis, by the way). But now, as my husband and I enter the twilight of our family’s time in the military, I’ve become a sentimental old fool. “Please rise for the presentation of the colors and the singing of the national anthem,” a cadet at the podium announced. I had seen it a million times, but I was worried about tearing up. In recent years, even the crackly recording of the morning national anthem blaring over the loudspeakers in our base housing neighborhood has made me patriotically pause between sips of coffee to get a little misty, and colors in the

with an ugly cry face. The diverse color guard marched in precise lock step, placing the flags behind the podium. Four uniformed singers kept perfect harmony, as the entire crowd crooned, “For the land of the free! … And the home of the brave!” We raised glasses high, in a litany of customary toasts to the flag, the president, the Joint Chiefs, the cadets, and the midshipmen. The final toast to the prisoners of war and missing in action did me in, and I swept an escaped tear off my cheek as the master of ceremonies drew our attention to each traditional item – a rose, a lemon slice, salt and a candle – on the small symbolic empty table near the podium. “Salmon or chicken, ma’am?” the bow-tied waiter asked before plopping a steaming plate on the table in front of me. I ate enough to test the bounds of my Spanx, before settling in with a cup of coffee to watch Francis’ speech. Adjusting his cummerbund, Francis spoke to the roomful of bright young men and women about viewing themselves as part of a joint military profession that is

both ethical and competent. However, he explained, as military servicepersons, they do not just hold a job, “we live a lifestyle and carry on military traditions reaching back for centuries.” Before leaving the podium, Francis looked up and softened his voice. “As I approach the sunset of my military career, at times I wonder if I’ve made the right decisions in life, and have provided for my family as best I could, recognizing the hardships and sacrifices they’ve had to endure from time to time. But … when I remap my career back to May 22, 1988, when I raised my right hand in the recruiter’s office, I realize I wouldn’t change a single day of it. I am truly envious of you all who are just starting your journey …You have so much to look forward to.” After his first standing ovation, Francis took his seat, stunned, humbled and grateful. Then, the master of ceremonies took the podium one last time to announce the final time-honored military tradition: “We ask that you do not take the centerpieces. The dance floor is now open.”

Women’s History Month: Rear Adm. Mary Jackson and Cmdr. Andria Slough From Defense Media Activity


rom the Revolutionary War to current conflicts, women have played a crucial role in the security of our nation and the success of the U.S. Navy. Join us as we celebrate Women’s History Month by profiling women leaders and pioneers across the Navy.

Rear Adm. Mary Jackson Commander, Navy Region Southeast. Q: Why did you decide to join the Navy? A: I was looking for something different than a traditional college experience, and I wanted to study oceanography. I confess that I knew very little about the Navy and the Naval Academy, but my father was convinced I could not get in. At the time, I was much more focused on the adventure and a degree than I was on the Navy. I have been on a bow wave, along with a few other women, over the past 25 years as more and more opportunities have been open to women at sea and in our Navy. I never dreamed I would still be serving, but I continue to serve because I believe in our mission and I believe in the team of professionals I serve alongside. Q: Who have your role models or mentors been that have influenced you or helped to guide you throughout your Navy career? A: I try to learn from everyone I am around and absorb data points about their life that might apply to mine, professionally and personally. Those people that stand out are those that have helped me navigate the more challenging times. They took time to talk and brainstorm and listen. Often, the junior Sailors (and staff) were the incentive to work harder and

be better at my job. I remember a young boatswain’s mate who told me my ensign salute was goofy, and my first chief who challenged me to ensure my preventive maintenance boards were flawless. In light of women’s history, many women comment that they have never worked for women before. During my first sea tour onboard USS Willamette (AO-180), I served under two XOs who happened to be women. Those were the pioneers that started their careers in ships in the late 1970s. They were exceptional at their jobs, and they demonstrated, through action, that life as a surface warfare officer was rewarding. They, as well as many others, influence me every day. Q: Can you share a story about someone, perhaps someone in your family or otherwise, who has influenced you or challenged you to become more than perhaps even you ever thought you might? A: We never want to disappoint those people that mean the most to us. My father passed away suddenly from cancer during my first sea tour. He never saw me in my element. It is hard to believe that he has been gone for 26 years, but I am motivated everyday by his belief in me. And, by extension, my family keeps me grounded and reinforces the notion that our service makes a difference. Nothing is

Cmdr. Andria Slough Commanding Officer USS Porter (DDG 78). Q: Why did you decide to join/serve the Navy? A: By early high school my dreams of an adventurous career meant that I needed to be part of an organization that was big enough and progressive enough to offer me a fast-paced lifestyle with upward mobility. At my father’s suggestion and mother’s support, I applied to both the Air Force and Naval academies. After lengthy interviews with Con-

Cmdr. Andria Slough

gressman William Hughes’s nominating committee and staff, I received an appointment to the United States Naval Academy. The ensuing candidate visit weekend

more rewarding than seeing your own children proud. Q: Tell us which past assignments are the most memorable to you and why? A: Every assignment has been memorable in its own way, but certainly commanding both USS McFaul (DDG-74) and Naval Station Norfolk were the highlights. It really is about being a part of a team, and nothing is better than being on the winning team. As daunting as the responsibility of command may seem, the rewards of seeing a team come together, focused on the mission, and making a difference are very humbling. I loved being at sea and being able to sit in the captain’s chair on the bridge and watch the team sail and fight our

absolutely convinced me the Navy was my opportunity to start a career. Since then, I have been drawn to the Navy by the extremely interesting work, the high quality of the people that I have worked for and with, and the wonderful places that I have been able to visit over 40 countries so far. Q: Who have your role models or mentors been that have influenced you or helped to guide you? My role models and mentors have been many and phenomenal. My grandfather was a retired Air Force colonel and he and my grandmother

capital ship at sea. Serving as an installation commanding officer, I added a whole new skillset tied to infrastructure, energy, and managing large portfolios of people and resources across diverse programs supporting our warfighters and their families. I am very proud as a region commander of the deeply dedicated professionals, both military and civilian, who work tirelessly to support our fleet, fighter and family. Q: What does being a leader in the Navy mean to you? A: Being a leader is about remembering what it is like to be a follower. I always try to remember where I came from and to understand other people’s back-

taught me how to read and swim before I entered kindergarten, which I started a year early. My father and mother constantly pushed education, challenged me to take the tough courses, and paid for equipment and extra education from their limited, hard earned income any time I needed it. At the U.S. Naval Academy, now retired Capt. Mary Jo Sweeney gave me constant tips and help in getting through the rigors of midshipman life. Q: What does being a leader in the Navy mean to you? A: First, a leader

grounds and what they bring to the team. We all come with strengths and weaknesses, and that is good. Realizing the human side of our profession, and building that into our collective strength is our center of gravity. A leader of a team, large or small, influences the direction, positively or negatively, of this center of gravity. Some days are easier than others. But, the opportunity to serve means the opportunity to impact. I believe in people, and I believe in being humble. There is nothing more enriching than knowing the mission, working hard towards the objective, and seeing the smiles of pride on the faces of the professionals you are entrusted to lead. They make it happen.

should always remember it is a privilege to lead the officers and crew of a ship, especially one as advanced as Porter. It is the leaders’ job to create an environment in which the crew can bring their talents and diversity together to accomplish the assigned task as well as satisfy their desires and needs. Today’s ships are way too complex for a single person to operate; the leader is responsible for building a cohesive environment in which every member must is fully integrated into the team. Second, a leader must also instill a sense of her-

itage into the crew. They should be proud of the Porter family and namesakes, proud of their lineage as U.S. Navy Sailors, and proud of their shipmates. Third, a leader must drive everything toward excellence in all aspects of shipboard life. It’s dangerous out here, and settling for mediocrity won’t bring us home from patrol every time. Finally, a leader must demand excellence without arrogance. We must never forget how, just a few short months ago, we were the Sailors learning a new task or developing a new concept.

Dekraai to assume command of HT-28 By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs


mdr. Jeffrey D. Ketcham transfered command of Helicopter Training Squadron 28 (HT-28) to Marine Lt. Col. Cory E. Dekraai, March 24 at the Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) Auditorium. The 10 a.m. ceremony marked the transition of authority from one officer to the other in front of the assembled staff, instructors and students. Retired Rear Adm. Tim Heeley, served as the guest speaker for the occasion. Ketcham served as the squadron’s commanding officer for approximately 15 months and an additional 15 months as executive officer. He assumed command of HT-28 in December 2014. Under Ketcham’s leadership, HT-28 completed more than 55,000 flight

hours and flew more than 22,000 sorties, producing a total of 376 new unrestricted naval aviators. Ketcham has been deployed around the world, including the North Sea, Caribbean Sea, Mediterranean Sea, the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Gulf in support of Operation Southern Watch, PANAMAX 2005, humanitarian response to Hurricane Katrina, and counter-piracy operations. He completed shore tours in Omaha, Neb., Patuxent River, Md., and attended the

Naval War College in Newport, R.I. Dekraai’s support as executive officer has certainly played an important role in HT-28’s successes, and he will strive to continue the unit’s tradition of excellence as commanding officer. Prior to reporting to HT-28, Dekraai served at Marine Corps Forces Command, Norfolk, Va. He served as the tilt rotor and rotary wing operations officer, responsi-

ble for sourcing, coordinating, and validating Marine Corps tilt rotor and rotary wing activities. Ketcham leaves the “Hellions” to accept orders as the navigator for the USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) out of Norfolk, Va. Cmdr. Robert Dulin will replace Dekraai as the executive officer for the squadron.

NASWF volunteers help with community cleanup Story, photo by Lt.j.g. Andrew Bertucci NASWF Public Affairs Staff

While being recognized for his outstanding community service on Feb. 25 AB1 David D. Hernandez encountered an opportunity to assist a veteran in need of help following the recent storms that hit the Florida Panhandle. Retired Navy Capt. Walt Reese sat at Hernandez’s table during the Margaret Flowers Civic Award ceremony and discussed how the storm had left his yard a mess. Hearing the extent of the work that needed to be done, Hernandez decided to do what he could to help in any way possible. Reese joined the Navy in May 1943 with a career spanning through World War II, the Korean War and Viet-

nam. Having served in the aviation community for 30 years Reese has a deep respect and understanding for the training that goes on at NAS Whiting Field. Having recently turned 90 years old


Reese was not able to do the work himself and that is why he appreciated Hernandez’s efforts on his behalf. “We all know Mr. Reese as a gentleman and upstanding citizen who served our

country and our Navy for a very long time. We wanted to make sure to give back to him and help in any way we could. He has been a big support to NAS Whiting Field and it is important to

help those in need in our community,” Hernandez said. Hernandez, along with ABH2 Richard Sharpe, organized the removal of three trees and cleanup of the debris scattered across the front lawn. Sharpe assisted the project by providing various tools and equipment such as a mower and wheelbarrow that greatly helped expedite the cleanup March 16. Hernandez organized a team of 10 chiefs and first class petty officers who throughout the morning were able to remove the fallen trees and debris. “They have done an absolutely great job today. The Navy has been good to me and continues to, thanks to Petty Officer Hernandez and these volunteers,” said Reese.

USS Oriskany 10 years after sinking, ‘the Great Carrier Reef’

serves divers, fish and fishermen From VisitPensacola.com


o commemorate the 10th anniversary of the reefing of the former USS Oriskany in May, Visit Pensacola invites explorers of all ages to visit this historic seaport, located on the northwest edge of Florida, and explore some of Pensacola’s most incredible scenery hidden beneath the waves. Pensacola is home to a number of shipwrecks from centuries past, including the Emanuel Point I and II wrecks from the fleet of Don Tristán de Luna’s 1559 colonization attempt, as well as more recent wrecks and artificial reefs, including the USS Massachusetts and the Oriskany, known as the “Mighty O.” On May 17, 2006, the Oriskany became the first U.S. warship scuttled under a Navy pilot program to convert decommissioned naval ships as artificial reefs. Explosive charges were detonated along the retired 911-foot naval aircraft carrier, and at 44,000 tons, the Mighty O sank stern-first in just 37 minutes to become, by far, the largest vessel ever sunk to make a reef. The massive warship now rests upright on the sandy bottom, 212 feet below the

surface of the Gulf of Mexico about 24 miles southeast of Pensacola Pass. In the 10 years since her sinking, the Oriskany has put Pensacola on the map as a diving spot. The ship holds prolific sea life – from tiny sponges to Goliath grouper to sneaky sharks – with superb opportunities for underwater video and photography. Divers from as far as Australia, Japan, Sweden and Russia have returned from the depths singing the praises of the Mighty O, and CNN dubbed the wreck “The Great Carrier Reef.” The Mighty O has also become a big lure for history and military buffs, including veterans who once served on the ship. Commissioned shortly after World War II, the ship served primarily in the Pacific, earning two battle

stars for service in the Korean War and 10 battle stars for service in the Vietnam War. Although the Mighty O may be out of commission above the water, that is certainly not the case below. The ship is visible to divers at every skill level, however accessing the ship’s flight deck region requires an advanced diving certification since it is located at 145 feet — about 15 feet outside the recreational diving limit. Her crown, or island, can be approached at 78 feet in

emerald-clear water where visibility averages 70 to 150-plus feet. In addition to the Oriskany, Pensacola offers four other shipwreck sites along the Florida Shipwreck Dive Trail (http://www. florida panhandle divetrail.com). They include: • Three Coal Barges – The wreckage of these barges creates a bridge of undersea habitat and is a great location for beginning divers to practice. • San Pablo – A freighter ship sunk in 1944, her wreckage is scattered across the seafloor where divers can explore huge sections of twisted metal – home to an impressive array of marine life. • Pete Tide II – Reefed in 1993 about 12 miles south of Pensacola Pass, the Pete Tide II is intact and upright and easy to penetrate. Sea turtles, triggerfish and schools of red snapper and amberjack can often be found there. • YDT-14 – One of two

Navy diving tenders sunk in 2000, the ship is home to resident barracudas. In addition to the Panhandle Shipwreck Trail, several other local dive sites are accessible to divers of various skill levels including the USS Massachusetts, commissioned in 1896 – one of the nation’s oldest battleships, located just 25 feet down about 1.5 miles from the Pensacola shore — and the 400-foot freighter Antares in Pensacola Pass, a favorite spearfishing destination. No scuba diving certifi-

cation? Don’t worry. For those who prefer snorkeling in shallow waters, there is an extensive artificial reef system along Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key. Park East is located about 1.4 miles east of Portofino Island Resort on Pensacola Beach. The reef on Perdido Key can be accessed from the public beach area off Sandy Key Drive. The reefs are located 500 feet off shore where snorkelers will find a variety of fish, sea turtles and sea life in the clear waters of the Gulf.

Fourth graders competing to name ferry boats From the National Park Service

Gulf Islands National Seashore (GINS) and members of the Pensacola community are making plans for the Pensacola Bay ferry service scheduled to begin in 2017, and are seeking the participation of Escambia and Santa Rosa counties’ fourth-grade classes in a boat-naming contest. Two 150 passenger, double-decker catamaran ferry boats are under construction. Students from the winning classes will be invited as special guests to the ribbon-cutting ceremony in 2017, and will get a free ride on the ferry’s inaugural trip for themselves and up to three family members. The ferry boat naming contest is part of the National Park Service’s Every Kid in a Park initiative, which

offers free annual national park passes to all fourth-grade students. GINS Superintendent Dan Brown has invited fourth grade classes to think of creative names that are relevant to the seashore’s natural and cultural resources, and he is encouraging each class to submit two names. Submittal forms and instructions have been sent to every fourth grade teacher in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. Important dates are: • April 18, 2016: Entries are due by 5 p.m. via e-mail to brent_everitt@ nps.gov. • May 16, 2016: Winners are sched-

uled to be announced. • March 2017: Inaugural VIP ferry ride for students and families from winning classrooms. Here are some of the submission rules: • The Every Kid in a Park Program engages fourth graders, so only fourth grade classes are eligible to submit entries to the contest. • Fourth grade teachers may submit two names per classroom (one entry form). • Names must be relevant to GINS natural or cultural resources. In 1971, Congress established the

seashore area “in order to preserve for public use and enjoyment certain areas possessing outstanding natural, historic, and recreational values.� For more than 40 years the National Park Service has preserved the designated seashore area in keeping with that purpose. The Pensacola Bay ferry service will provide an alternative means of visitor access to the GISNS and Fort Pickens. The ferry will also allow visitors to access the park if the road to Fort Pickens is made impassable by storms or other unfavorable conditions. For more information on Gulf Islands National Seashore go to www.nps.gov/guis. More information on the Every Kid in a Park initiative go to www.everykidinapark.gov.

Worship schedule

If you are a victim of sexual assault, it is not your fault. Help for victims of sexual assault in the DoD community is a call, click or text away: The SafeHelpline provides live, one-on-one crisis support and information by trained staff. Call: (877) 995-5247; click: www.SafeHelpline.org; or text: 55-247, CONUS; (202) 470-5546, OCONUS (may be extra charges for OCONUS). The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to non-intimate partner adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted reporting allows victim to have an advocate, seek medical care, counseling, legal services, safety interventions and/or transfer, etc. To access an unrestricted report, the victim may report to his/her chain-ofcommand, security/law enforcement, NCIS, SAPR VA, SARC, or others. NCIS shall be notified by the CO and/or the VA/SARC in unrestricted cases to begin investigation. Investigation results are provided to the offender’s CO for appropriate action/disposition. Restricted reporting allows a victim to have a confidential report, which does not trigger command or law enforcement notification and the victim may have a SAPR VA and seek medical care and/or counseling. To access restricted reporting, the victim may disclose his/her sexual assault only to the SARC, a current SAPR VA, a health care professional and/or a chaplain. To contact the NASP 24/7 Victim Advocate, call 449-9231/2. For the Civilian Victim Advocate, call 293-4561. To contact the duty SARC, call the SARC cell at 554-5606.
